Historically, supply chain information and relationships have been captured and managed across several teams and databases; some used for mapping, some for compliance and so on. In today's world with large globally dispersed, multi-tier supply chains, combining data to gain deeper insights into your supply chain is imperative to success.
Segura’s powerful data capture and reporting capabilities provides full visibility, validation and control over your entire supply chain to n-tier. It will efficiently map and manage all supplier, compliance and supply chain data, in one place, ensuring that all suppliers are both ethical and sustainable.

BRAND IMAGE & REPUTATIONThrough mitigating supply chain risks, preventing supply chain disruptions and managing legislative compliance, you are protecting your business' image and reputation and with the rise in today's conscious consumer, this is incredibly important. Research by Julia Hartmann and Sabine Benoit suggests that consumers do not differentiate between members of the supply chain when it comes to poor supplier behaviours. Instead, they hold the focal firm responsible for everything that occurs in the supply chain and this could result in bad word-of-mouth or even boycotting in some cases.
Not only can our platform be financially beneficial to business through risk mitigation but confirmed suppliers and order volumes means that brands and retails can accurately calculate rebate entitlement and gain access to increased volume discounts in the future.
RISK MITIGATIONThe confirmed location of your suppliers gives you the power to mitigate supply chain disruptions and build effective contingency plans should a natural disaster or other supply chain failure occur. By doing this, you can ensure minimal disruption to your operations and keep your speed-to-market competitive.
PRODUCT QUALITY & COMPLIANCE
Unauthorised subcontracting often occurs unbeknown to retailers and brands, therefore lacking control when supplied with products of inferior quality or counterfeit items. With production tracking and the ability to identify where your products are you can avoid being supplied with these poor-quality products.
ETHICAL & SUSTAINABLE SOURCING
The document management aspect of the system means that you have the ability to distribute your business' code of conduct, ethical and sustainability policies and initiatives like ACT across your entire global supply chain. This is done in a way that cannot be ignored, enabling you to identify non-compliant suppliers and have the insight required to source ethically and sustainably.
